Great news! We recently received word that our distribution outlet, the Chicago Distribution Center, is back up and running, so we are once again shipping all of our titles. Please consider supporting our wonderful authors:
Unfortunately, we just learned that Moon City Press’ distribution outlet, the Chicago Distribution Center, has closed until April 9 in response to the social-distancing order in Illinois. This will, of course, temporarily disrupt our ability to ship our titles, but rest assured that normal business procedures will resume as soon as the order is lifted, and we encourage you to go ahead and order books in the meantime as a way of supporting both our press and our authors:

“Pablo Piñero Stillmann’s astonishing stories stun with their punchy sharpness and style, with their deeply layered humor and humanity. Each piece is disarmingly matter-of-fact in its patient excavation of emotional density: mental anguish, generational grief, existential resignation. I burned through Our Brains and the Brains of Miniature Sharks in a day, and you will, too:a genuinely immersive collection from a dazzling writer.”—Joseph Scapellato, author of The Made-Up Man
